BLM & Anti-Racism Resources

The principles of inclusion, diversity, and social justice are fundamental to our Human Biology mission. Everything, in short, that stands in contrast to the injustice, bias, and devaluation of Black lives that have been highlighted, yet again, in the last month.

  • RaceWorks: A resource for educators and facilitators who want to develop students’ or coworkers’ racial literacy
  • LARA Method: Listen, Affirm, Respond, and Ask Questions, builds respect and common ground between people in conversation, allowing you to explore your differences more openly and honestly.
  • Are You Ready To Talk?: A resource for those who want. to have or lead a conversation about different identities, experiences, or viewpoints.
  • Centering Black Community Needs: Developed by the Office of Graduate Education for faculty and staff to engage in difficult conversations and better support students, postdocs, and research staff
  • Resources for Education and Action: Readings developed by the Teaching & Mentoring Academy to support education around racism and anti-racism.
  • Justice In June: Becoming an active ally to the black community
